Book on life at the Dakota with the Lennons and others on sale


Stephen Birmingham's book "Life at the Dakota: New York's Most Unusual Address" is currently on sale at Amazon.com in the Kindle e-book version for $1.99, which is a bargain compared to the paperback and hardback versions which start at $10. While not strictly a book about John Lennon, both he and Yoko Ono are mentioned all through it and there are several stories about their residency there, including how Lennon once ran twine across a staircase balustrade that the author speculates was probably done for Sean's safety to keep him from falling through it. But the book looks at the entire history of the building and many of its famous residents along with its history. It is one of those e-books on sale at Amazon for the month of May only.
